Its been a strange week being at home again but it has given me the chance to concentrate on the spinning wheel,

quilt a larger version of the dragon doodle for a class sample ( forgot to take photo)

Thank you to everyone who has given encouragement on my spinning attempts and have a good weekend.

Love that pink and purple spin you did. Looks like you've been having fun!

Sounds like a productive week! I seriously love your yarns - particularly the second one - just my colours! Any plans what you'll make with them? I find art yarns intriguing - they look so wonderful but I wouldn't have a clue what to use them for! Perhaps I need to be a bit more adventurous with my spinning and crocheting... :)
PS
Lovely photies too!

Hi, I'm interested in learning to spin as well, I'm hoping to get a drop spindle in the summer and sit outside in the sun having a go! Love your yellow flowers, I bet they smell gorgeous!! Have a lovely weekend, Carolyn

Lovely spinning. I would probably use the rings as a resist in some dyeing or get really messy printing with them. Must be lots of possibilities including decorative. Wrap them? weave through them?
